Ireland’s most southwesterly point, and home to the Mizen Head Signal station, as you can see, it’s an isolated spot that is enhanced by modern paths and an essential bridge (to my mind)
We didn’t need telling more than once
We were keeping to the paths.
Which had their own attractions
We are duty bound to photograph such feats of engineering, as Joe is studying civil engineering, and like to see a nice bridge.
The signal station is now a museum, much of its original equipment remains,
Along with documents,
which kind of looked a bit haphazard, but one hopes they’ve been catalogued
This was my favourite, an inventory of tubes and fuses, who need an Excel spreadsheet eh? I like the faux alligator skin print of the cover
Working here must have been an isolated life, you weren’t going to see a lot from the window, and certainly not the next landfall of America, it does feel like the edge of the world.
and before the bridge was built, there were only a few ways of leaving.
We had the luxury of walking off, although Mr Uphilldowndale, was keeping to the centre of the bridge, and not looking down.
